A Florida man was charged with battery after he allegedly hit his brother with a Styrofoam plate.
On Aug. 17 the two brothers and their father were in the dining room of a Fort Walton Beach residence when an argument. According to the father, the spat began when one of the brothers began making disparaging comments about his mother.
During the argument, one brother apparently picked up a Styrofoam plate and swung at his brother, striking him in the face. The victim suffered several small cuts to his cheek and the left side of this face, an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputy wrote in the arrest report.
The brother was charged with misdemeanor battery and will report to a judge on Sept. 4.
